Health Insurance Taxes and Fees Estimator for Employers

Who is this for?


If you sponsor health insurance for your employees, you can use this tool to see a breakdown of the federal and state taxes and fees listed on your 2014 bill or quote from us.

When you receive a January 2014 bill or renewal from us, or get a quote for a 2014 plan, you'll see a new line for federal and state taxes and fees.

Where did they come from? Two are paid to the State of Michigan. The others were established by the Affordable Care Act to support health care reform. Some of the taxes and fees will be used to:

  • Raise money to support the individual health insurance market
  • Help fund the state and federal insurance marketplaces
  • Assist research that compares how well different medical treatments work

Our Health Insurance Taxes and Fees Estimator itemizes these taxes and fees. It also calculates estimated amounts for each tax that applies to you. Please note: The tool only gives estimates for taxes and fees on medical coverage. If you provide dental or vision coverage, it won't be included in the estimate.

You can find more information below, as well as some helpful instructions for using the estimator.
